- You can always chain 14 instead of using a ponytail holder.

Single crochet secure stitch– is when you take the hook in project, yarn over, take the hook back through the stitch, take the hook in the next stitch, yarn over, take the hook back through the stitch, yarn over, take hook through all remaining loops on the hook.

I used this pattern with worsted weight yarn and an I-9 (5.50mm) hook. When you come to round 5 do this instead:
Round 5-11: slst in next st, ch 2, puff st in each st around, join in first puff st of round (Do not cut yarn.) (30 sts)
It says ch 6, for the child size it needs to be ch 5 instead. Continue the pattern as written.
If you decide to make the bow, continue as written, no changes.
